Evans was one of the younger sons of Joseph Bennett Sr., based on his precedence in Joseph senior's will and an unverified online source of his 1762 birth date.
Evans was left two slaves in his father's will, and no land.
An unverified online source lists his marriage to Emy Husband with three children, Amelia, Joseph, and Anthony. This marriage is not listed in "Mecklenburg County Marriages, 1765-1810", or in the follow on volume covering 1811-1853.
Evans is also virtually absent from deed, bond, and will records in Mecklenburg county. He is listed as a purchaser of goods at some of the estate auctions of his older brothers.
